Flag of Spain and Canary Islands  , Castile-León,
Saturday, April 25, 2009

I ended up taking a train from Lisbon to Salamanca yesterday and shared a car with three guys on their way back home. (The ones from England and Switzerland were staying in Paris and the one from India was staying in Barcelona.) They were extremely nice and shared their dinner and wine with me. They ended up going to the same hostel as me when they found out it was only €12 and our room was huge - for 20 people!
It was nice enough, though I have nothing to compare it to... haha
Anyway, it was a bed to sleep in and a shower this morning. I left my bag there and went to explore the city. Stopped at this internet cafe to try to find someone to stay with in Madrid where I am headed tonight. I have to find out when the train leaves and catch it over there. My phone is dead though and the converter I have doesnŽt seem to be the right one, so I canŽt even charge it... So weŽll see how that goes! I guess IŽll just have to buy a phone card and use that for the time being.
When I have more time, I am going to post about my visit to Lisbon and put in some photos if I can. All in all, Henrique was a wonderful host and I had a great time there!
Hasta luego!! (My Spanish isnŽt as bad as I thought, since I am not really having too much trouble here.)

Enjoy the blogs.
Gramma and I enjoy reading your blogs. I have tried to get one set up for our trip to the Baltics and Russian River cruise, but I cannot seem to get parts of it to work yet. Hopefully by the time we leave I will get it figured out. Keep letting us know updates about your trip. Glad you can do it while you are young. Old folks like us have to take the easy way tours!
Love, Grampa and Gramma
